Stayed here last fall and had a great time, Much quieter than the nearby Dowdy Lake CG.. West Lake Campground is 48 miles northwest of Fort Collins there is canoeing, fishing and hiking right from the CG. It is on the shore of West Lake, the elevation is 8,200 feet. Due to the mountain pine beetle infestation and removal of hazardous trees, some sites have reduced shade. Not far away is a cool Fire spotting tower you can climb for spectacular views... There are 31 campsites, with electric hookups. Five additional sites are designated for tent camping only Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Firewood may be gathered in the forest or purchased from the campground host. The small village of Red Feather Lakes is nearby, offering limited dining options, gift shops, general stores, a library, post office and golf course.
